Ah, it’s the last day of September and that means come tomorrow, when October emerges we will be in full Fall Mode! If you’ve been reading OHC for a while, then you know how much I love this time of year! Fall is by far my favorite.
It’s just a bit chilly but not batten-down-the-hatches cold. Fall has crisp mornings and cool days that beg for sweaters, hoodies, and comfy boots. It has colorful leaves, bright sunshine, and the prospect of apple picking.
There are gorgeous foods to be made and pumpkins to celebrate!
That’s right, it’s time to celebrate pumpkins!
I have loved pumpkin pie since I was a kid and yet there is more to pumpkin than just a pie once a year. I have learned through experimenting and by reading what others are doing with pumpkin, that it is versatile and can be used in so many ways!
Pumpkin can be sweet, it can be savory, and it can be used in a variety of ways to achieve different results. In order to try and do the awesome pumpkin justice, OHC is declaring October to be Pumpkin Month!
We will be talking, tasting, and discussing our way through October focusing on the pumpkin and all the glorious ways we can use it in our kitchens.
So tell me friends, do you love pumpkin too? What is your favorite way to use pumpkin?
If you have a pumpkin tip or recipe that you would like to be featured this month, email me at Andrea AT Offhercork.com so we can chat about it!
